How to Avoid Snacking on Halloween Candy
Sometimes it can be hard to stay out of the Halloween candy. I’m sure you don’t want to go back out to the store to buy more candy. How can you avoid snacking on all the sugary treats!? Try some of the tips below. And GOOD LUCK! 🙂
Buy candy you don’t love. If the candy in your pantry is stuff kids like but that you don’t enjoy, it will be easier to resist opening those bags and diving in. For most of us, that means anything but chocolate.
Out of sight, out of mind
Ask your co-workers to keep their candy jars and bowls inside their desks or stashed in a cabinet in the break room so you won’t be tempted every time you see it. If they want to keep candy on their desks, ask them to use a colored container with a lid so you can’t see inside
Savor one piece of your favorite candy a day
Decide what time of day you most relish the sweet stuff, and save your special treat for that time. Then sit back and slowly savor the taste sensation.
Sugarless gum gives your mouth a burst of sweet sensation for very few calories. “Studies have shown that gum chewing can also help [you] relieve stress, mentally focus on tasks, satisfy a sweet tooth, overcome the urge to eat candy, and help manage hunger pangs to hold you over until your next meal,” says Sandon.
Replace the candy with better choices
Make the see-food diet work in your favor by putting out a bowl of colorful fruit or veggies in place of the candy.
Move the candy jar
Chances are if you have to move for it, you won’t want it.
Count the empty wrappers
It’s so easy to pop fun-size candy bars into your mouth that you can lose track of how quickly the calories are adding up.
Take a walking break
Getting away from your desk for a breath of fresh air can invigorate you and help you get over the mid-morning or mid-afternoon slumps that are often mistaken for hunger.
Manage your hunger
Eat breakfast before coming to work and plan for a few healthy snacks along with a satisfying lunch. Your preplanned meals with keep you feeling satisfied and make you less likely to raid the candy bowl.
